Happy Tuesday! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is Books I’d Give Different Titles To. And of course I tweaked it a bit… just a teensy bit this time, I promise. I’m giving honest titles to classic books, in other words – “Book Titles That Should Have Been” so we know what we’re signing on for when we start reading one. (If you missed last week’s post, make sure you click HERE for book titles that had me at hello!)
Where the Red Fern Grows is a book I read in elementary school…. and never again.
I didn’t read Bridge to Terabithia until my college “Kiddy Lit” class… and I wish I hadn’t then.
Jane Eyre could also be subtitled “The Crazy Woman in the Attic” or “See Jane Run.”
Never have I meant a word more than ‘never’ in Moby Dick‘s alternative title.
Wuthering Heights was emo before emo was a thing.
A Wrinkle in Time is a crazy ride at times but I love it!
Pride & Prejudice is sort-of like a game of table tennis, but much more delightful.
Gone With the Wind will never be on my list of fave reads… just sayin’ 🙂
The plot of Misery always helps me feel better – at least my fangirling isn’t that bad! LOL
Sense & Sensibility would have been a much shorter read had they known that upfront.
I had fun putting this list together with some help from my Mr. Knightley (aka, dear hubby). What about you? What are some more-honest titles for your fave classics?
